• Basque country’s utility EVE pioneers commercial utilization: 300 kW of power output;
• Voith Hydro’s reliability proven technology: over 10 yrs of grid-connected operation;
• Minimal ecological impact and strong economic synergies: 16 Wells turbines integrated in new Mutriku breakwater structure.

Utility Ente Vasco de la Energía (EVE) officially started the Mutriku wave power plant – the first worldwide in commercial operation. Voith Hydro supplied the equipment for Mutriku’s 16 power units that will provide an output of 300 kilowatts in total - electricity sufficient for around 250 homes.

“The rising global demand for green energy is proving to be a strong catalyst for the implementation of innovative forms of renewable energy. The Mutriku project shows: Our wave power technology is commercially viable and ready for wide deployment on the global markets”, says Dr. Roland Muench, Chief Executive Officer of Voith Hydro Holding. “To further this development, adequate feed-in-tariffs for wave power, as already exist in some countries, can now set the right political framework.”

Voith Hydro’s wave power technology can be deployed in new and existing breakwaters, and in purpose-built structures. Building on its long-term proven reliability, continuous design improvement have allowed for developing the technology to its leading-edge performance. The worldwide potential of the ocean energies is at an estimated 1.8 terawatts and still remains largely untapped.

Voith Hydro ’s OWC (oscillating water column) technology is the only one that demonstrates the availability required for commercial deployment. On the Scottish island of Islay, Voith Hydro has been operating the commercial-scale Limpet wave power plant for over a decade, generating power to the national grid for over 65,000 hours.

Voith Hydro (voithhydro.com) is a Group Division of Voith and - with a workforce of currently almost 5,200 employees and a sales volume of almost 1.2 billion Euros in the business year 2009/2010 – belongs to the world-wide leading companies for hydro power equipment.

Voith (voith.com) sets standards in the markets energy, oil & gas, paper, raw materials and transportation & automotive. Founded in 1867, Voith employs almost 40,000 people, generates €5.2 billion in sales, operates in about 50 countries around the world and is today one of the biggest family-owned companies in Europe.
